Ferry across the Mersey ride – ...

Hi – yes its summer, so its time for the Ferry across the Mersey ride. This is a reminder post just in case you’ve forgotten to book the day of work – or for those who don’t look at the calendar! I’ve moved to an earlier date to avoid the school holidays and it will be on […]

Pedal Powering along…

Pedal Powering along…

No club runs today, but we did have a stand at Pedal Power this year again. A day of showers and not showers looked like it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the many sportive participants and the other stallholders, with all sorts of food, drink and stuff on display and for sale. Starley Bikes had […]

WVCC Club (nearly*) 10(s) – 2 u...

It appeared that the slight change in climatic conditions with sporadic heavy showers punctuating the sweltering heat, gave rise to what is sometimes deemed in time trialling terms as a ‘floater'(!) Perhaps perfect conditions for some excellent times. In some respects, it’s a shame that this wasn’t Guardian Cup round 5, as there would have been […]

Guide Dogs, team orders, glorious sun...

Wow. What a day. Hot, hot, hot. It was great to meet at the club and get on our way to feel the breeze on a hot day. We all gathered for 1 ride today, and set off for a ride to the Ice Cream Farm. As we rode down the entrance drive from the […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

A difficult evening to read as the riders turned up to sign on tonight. A bit heavy perhaps, but a cross-tailwind start, and even a bit of a tail-finish. This of course meant that there would be a headwind on the A50. Never good. Nevertheless, 24 riders started, hoping to snatch at least a second […]

Guide Dogs for the Blind – Tour...

Guide Dogs for the Blind – Tour de Tattenhall – 5th June 2016 What’s that all about then? Well, it’s been a couple of years since we’ve teamed up with Guide Dogs for the Blind – http://www.guidedogs.org.uk for a day to a) raise a bit of money for this worthy charitable cause, and b) to have a […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

Well, another change in the weather. Who could have thought? A heavy, damp and drizzly night reduced the willing field to 17 riders this evening. It was going to be a case of gritting your teeth, and just getting on with it, to hope not to lose too much time from your target PB! This was […]

Mow Cop – The return of the Kil...

It was definitely time to put Mow Cop back on the club run scene. Normally only reserved for long runs, we decided it would be a good idea to give it a go, then try out a new club run cafe highly recommended by one of us who had spotted a sign last time we were […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

A slightly more pleasant evening this week as the wind was a little more favourable, with a tailwind start, and a cross wind on the A50, but it’s never easier, you just go faster or push yourself harder! Fast men tonight were those flying into the 23s, with Jacob Booth from Team Bikehaus taking the […]

Have your say – a Rights of Way...

Cheshire West and Chester Council are to create a new Rights of Way Improvement Plan. They are carrying out a short online survey to get public feedback – your chance to tell them what you think about footpaths, bridleways, etc. in our area. It would be really useful to get feedback from the cycling community! Please find the link […]

The familiar unfamiliar, big cakes, l...

It was a cooler than expected start to the day as I left home for the club. I left my arm warmers on and did a few miles of spinning to get the legs warm. Fortunately, as I neared the club, glimmers of blue sky did appear in the distance, although the wind kept things […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

In stark difference to the week before, the weather was dry but the wind was in an entirely different direction. This made for a very hard night for most, and there weren’t many who were gaining time on the night, with a crosswind off the start, and a headwind along the A50 for what seemed like […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! 🌪 pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
